The primary role of the exhaust system in your vehicle, as the name suggests, is to discard the exhaust gases coming from the engine, through a set of pipes, to the outside world. Of course, each and every exhaust system makes some sound, channelising the gases through these pipes. Modern standards require the automakers to adhere to strict emission norms and to reduce the sound signature of their vehicle’s exhaust, as much as possible. Most of us wouldn’t mind such norms and don’t do too much to modify the sound coming out of those pipes.
But, if you are an enthusiast and own a really nice car, let’s say, a $2.3 million dollar Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, you wouldn’t mind advertising your presence in more ways than one. One of the most prominent ways to announce your arrival, is to make sure that people can hear you coming. With the help of exotic materials and certain expertise, it’s definitely not hard making your engine sound loud and punchy, especially if this engine has 16-cylinders and 4 turbochargers, in all making 1200 horsepower. QuickSilver, is an UK-based aftermarket exhaust systems manufacturer and they have developed a unique, all-titanium exhaust system for the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. The company claims it to be the most expensive exhaust system in the world!
They also claim to be the first to develop a custom exhaust system that is tailor-made for this hypercar. The entire system, apparently, only weighs half of that of the car’s original exhaust system. QuickSilver says the exhaust sound is “brutal”, and they aren’t kidding. Watch the video and be ready to quiver with goosebumps on hearing the earsplitting soundtrack, which we think, sounds absolutely fantastic! Now, everyone would know how a 1500 horsepower engine really sounds like when it’s angry. We don’t know if this custom exhaust makes the Bugatti any faster, but who cares! Speed and acceleration was never a concern with this car, anyway. Now, enjoy the soundtrack and let us know what you think about it.
